FINE ART Photography


One of my favourite photographers, Jonathan Critchley, once wrote how much he hated anyone to criticise his work. That, he said, was the sole reason why he wouldn't be a part of online photography forums. And I heartily concur.

They are an anathema to me; why, I wouldn't join any conversation that would have me as a contributor. I would rather stick tooth picks under my eye lids than post one of my photos on, say, flickr. Give me facebook 'likes' any day.


Talking of Jonathan Critchley: it reminds me of one of his articles in Black & White Photography, apropos crticism. At the opening night of one of his London exhibitions, he glanced at the gallery's visitors' book and spied this little gem:

'I do love your photographs, but wonder if they would perhaps look better in colour?'

Photography is a personal journey - for both photographer and viewer; we all take from the images whatever we find inside of them.
